Systematic Checks and Balances via Board, Facilitators, Staff

On a quarterly, annual and ongoing basis, the Board:

  • Develops and approves the bylaws for the Interstate Passport Network
  • Approves business and sustainability plans for the Passport
  • Establishes policies and procedures for participation in the Passport as outlined in the bylaws
  • Approves new institutions and states for participation
  • Reviews academic progress data from participating institutions
  • Recommends appropriate actions
  • Publishes an annual report on the status of the Interstate Passport program
  • Recommends new directions for research and operations

Passport State Facilitators are the point of contact for all faculty and stakeholders in each Interstate Passport state. They communicate with faculty about the Passport Learning Outcomes and Proficiency Criteria and oversee requests for feedback from institutions and other stakeholders. They provide valuable analysis and opinion and work closely with staff to ensure smooth implementation of the program.

The project staff has overall responsibility for the program. They communicate with and oversee all other committees, teams, consultants and others involved with Interstate Passport.
